Computer Labs

"Open" labs are available for all students on campus, regardless of major. Major- or student-specific labs (e.g., Grad students, Humanities majors) are indicated as such. Teaching Labs are classrooms that also consist of computer work stations. Courses are scheduled in these labs to allow hands-on learning for many diciplines. Teaching labs are available for student use when not being used by scheduled courses. View a list of computer labs.

Wireless Lounges

Wireless lounges are rooms that have no scheduled courses and are open 24/7 to all students. These rooms include various seating types such as couches, chairs and desks. Large LCD montiors are available to display your laptop or other portable device.
